Inhaltsangabe: Professor T.A. Shippey writes in his introduction to the present volume: `Speaking personally, Geoffrey Shepherd had a claim to being more influential on other medievalists than any other Englishman of his generation.' His former pupils testify to his intelligence and subtlety, yet he never wrote a full-length book, and his scholarship survives in a handful of articles and in his work as an editor. This volume therefore represents the tangible testament of a major figure in English literary scholarship. The focus of the pieces reprinted here is on Anglo-Saxon religious verse, on Chaucer and on Piers Plowman, and in them Geoffrey Shepherd's highly original and often paradoxical approach is evident; he was equally interested in poetic vision and the value of grammar as a discipline, in the theory of storytelling and in the minutiae of textual editing. These rich and subtle pieces have much to offer, and their reissue will be widely welcomed.
Über den Autor: GEOFFREY SHEPHERDwas Professor in the Department of English Language and Literature at the University of Birmingham.
